Seamless Qualification is a Dassault Systèmes’ industry solution experience for Industrial Equipment companies, which allows fast, comprehensive and flexible product qualification across their global operations. Based on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, it delivers a global and local approach to product testing and simulation that leads to more reliable and better-quality products. With Seamless Qualification companies can rationalize their resources and samples for qualification, automate redundant tasks, and accommodate for a variety of test situations resulting in enhanced compliance to requirements and a lower cost of quality. It is the only solution on the market to provide end-to-end multidisciplinary test governance in a single environment: the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Improve product performance, quality and reliability with comprehensive testing and simulation.

Discover the values of Single Source for Speed solution:

  • Early integration of risk management in the design cycle
  • Correlate physical and virtual qualification results and eventually replace physical testing with less expensive virtual simulation
  • Live tracking of Design Verification Plan and Report (DVP&R) through smart dashboards
  • Guard against data redundancy and information loss
  • Reduce tasks with limited added value
  • Adapt test governance to global and local requirements

Qualified Execution

Effective qualification requires defining the most appropriate product testing or simulation strategy and executing this strategy with a predefined methodology. Yet the use of diverse and heterogeneous analysis tools, which include niche and in-house software, and absence of corporate best practices, make defining and deploying reusable qualification processes challenging if not altogether impossible. Companies need a flexible testing process across their global ecosystem that they can adapt and reuse as they move forward with product development.

With Qualified Execution, companies can automate and shorten testing execution by reusing qualification methodologies stored in the database as simulation templates. This reduces error-prone tasks and overall qualification cycle time. Templates can be generated using drag-and-drop authoring features for faster and more intuitive creation. Qualification processes can combine automatic and manual workflows to accommodate for the way companies really work. They have the flexibility to define the most suitable qualification strategy allowing them to adapt to a variety of testing criteria. Engineers can gather test results, organize them in specific report views, display them using graphics and analyze them to determine trends and draw conclusions. They can also group results from multiple tests, even those coming from third-party software, and include them in a design, verification plan & report. Since processes are capitalized in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, organizations have traceability for future decision-making.

Key Highlights and Benefits:

  • Define easy to apply re-useable test processes
  • Automate and streamline test execution steps
  • Gather and record test results and automate ‘non-value added’ tasks
  • Combine multiple test results and include report in the Design Verification Plan and Report (DVP&R)
  • Leading edge technology for Experimental Design, Optimization and Surrogate Modeling
  • Perform impact analysis to determine resulting qualification process when input variables change

Qualified Intelligence

The ability to analyze a huge quantity of testing data leads to better decision-making yet without proper post-processing, it is impossible to analyze trade-offs and effectively explore “what if” scenarios. Companies need efficient analysis tools to process information regardless of whether their data is generated from simulation or physical testing. They need to match requirements with design feasibility tradeoffs to find the optimal solution.

Qualified Intelligence delivers results analytics techniques to post-process, visualize and analyze trade-offs of large datasets. Accessible on the web, Qualified Intelligence allows users to access their data anytime, anywhere. They can post-process, filter, score and rank design alternatives based on objectives. As these objectives are modified, designs automatically score and re-rank helping to converge on the optimal design, which can then be shared with project stakeholders. Simulation and physical test results can be compared eventually helping to eliminate expensive and time-consuming physical testing that produces the same results as simulation. They can then capitalize this information in rule-based templates for future reference. Companies have access to a corporate library of deployed simulation methods. They also have a unique environment to store and retrieve all their simulation studies: the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, making data redundancy and loss of information a thing of the past. As everything is in the same system, it is easy to correlate multi-disciplinary testing data to drive conclusions and establish trends and to embed this knowledge in rules for later re-use.

Key capabilities and benefits:

  • Analyze effects and tradeoffs of design changes
  • Efficiently assess large sets of data
  • Predict optimal solution and future trends
  • 3D visual analytics
  • Decisions are based on verifiable facts
  • Create “predictive” models
  • Integrated solution
